Hi, beauty


Explanation:
This would be the literal translation for the beginning of an interaction. If found at the end, it would be "Bye, beauty". "Bella"= beautiful female

Hi, baby


Explanation:
Why did you put this into the Tech/Eng category? Maybe somebody said that to you at a Convention? I am sure that the tone of voice and the expression on the face of the person who told you that left few doubts about the meaning...did you really need to contact Proz?

Hi or (bye ) beautiful


Explanation:
I'm sure this is a joke, but just in case it isn't,"ciao" can mean "hi" or "bye" depending on the context. "bella" means "beautiful".
